Eglu or not?

Post by MamaOwl » 04 Dec 2017, 13:01

Is there a cheaper version? surprised nobody has come up with one....

Anyway, I am fantasising about getting this> EGLU with run < but it is VERY expensive, before I save up and take the plunge are they worth it? Any issues at all with them?

I just really fancy the idea of an easy to clean, red mite free house! lol

Some of our members used to recommend Green Frog coops but I've no idea how they compare in price to the Eglu?

See the thing that attracts me to Eglu is the no corners, no crevices and cracks..... The price however is maddening... I am shocked nobody has come up with a molded plastic cheaper option..
